The bride's outfit consists of a bodice, skirt and a separate underskirt. The bodice and skirt are made from a sheer white fabric, with small pink, blue or yellow flower sprigs. Peach satin ribbon accents the bodice and skirt, with a knotted bow effect. The voluminous sleeves are indicative of 1890s trends.
